2012 Official Working for Golf Film
Ernie Els' dramatic triumph a Royal Lytham & St Annes was the highlight of a successful 2012 for golf's governing body The R&A.
The popular South African capitalised on a late slip by Australia's Adam Scott to win by one shot and lift the Claret Jug for a second time. It set the seal on a wonderful year of championship golf from the Amateur Championship at Royal Troon to 14-year-old Guan Tianlang's remarkable win at the Asia-pacific Amateur Championship in Thailand.
The Working for Golf 2012 film focuses on The R&A's role in supporting the growth of golf around the world. The 30-minute broadcast looks at how the funds generated by The Open Championship are re-invested to benefit the game.
From supporting golf's recovery in New Zealand following the Cristchurch earthquake in 2011 to training referees in China, the film demonstrates the global breadth of The R&A's activities. It looks at the announcement of the proposed Rule change relating to anchored strokes and features contributions from The R&A's Working for Golf Ambassadors Padraig Harrington and Suzann Pettersen.
